Week 5 couldn't end soon enough for our College Football handicapper, but luckily there is a total that he sees as a great opportunity to bounce back as Week 6 begins.


Week 5 of the College Football season did me dirty on my college football picks, as I went 2-5 with my picks against the spread and some trends were inexplicitly broken without warning. That’s ok as we are still in the game and Week 6 has some great matchups from a wagering standpoint to take a look at. In this college football pick selection, I’m keying in on a game to start your wagering card that should go over the listed total.

2016 College Football Record: 14-17-1, -4.80 Units


Houston vs Navy

Opening as a 17.5-point favorite in this game, the 6th ranked Houston Cougars are in the 'style points win' part of their schedule as they face the 3-1 Navy Midshipmen. With Houston averaging 44.2 points per game and giving no signs of slowing down, the question is if Navy can score enough points to get this game over the listed total of 51.

After a very hot start and 52-point effort at Fordham, Navy’s offensive output has decreased in each game so far this year – ending in a 14-28 loss at Air Force last week. However, at home Navy is still averaging 40 points per game and the Midshipmen will be amped up for this matchup against a top-10 ranked team. We should only need 2 touchdowns here for the Over to cash, and I trust that Navy will be able to come through given they average 331 yards rushing per game at home. A 41-14 prediction is what I am going with for this game, which will be enough for a wager of Over of 51 at BetOnline to be a winning one.
